What is craniosacral therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy is a natural complimentary medicine, alternative health therapy, that brings the body to a deep space of restoration; so that it can release tensions, stresses and traumas that have been stored in the cellular tissues of the body from physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual trauma.

The brain and spinal cord that make up the central nervous system are heavily influenced by the craniosacral system – the dura matter – membranes and fluid that surround, protect and nourish the brain and spinal cord. Everyday your body endures stresses and strains that it must work to compensate for. Over time these stress and strains build up, creating stored traumas in the body. Unfortunately, these changes often cause body tissues to tighten, distorting the craniosacral system. These distortions can then cause tension to form around the brain and spinal cord resulting in restrictions in the movement of your cerebrospinal fluid. These restrictions can create a barrier to the healthy performance of the central nervous system, and potentially every other system it interacts with. Fortunately, such restrictions can be detected and corrected using simple methods of gentle touch. Through feather light touch our craniosacral therapists are able to facilitate the release of these restrictions so that the body can self-correct and heal, in order to operate at its highest potential.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique, developed in the early 19th century, by Dr. Mikau Uusi for stress reduction, relaxation, enlightenment and healing. It is administered by the laying on of hands, and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through all of us, and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy,  healthy and calm when dealing with stressful situations. Reiki safely facilitates the healing of energetic blockages that manifest in our physical, mental and  emotional bodies.  By healing these energetic blockages Reiki helps increase the vibration of our personal energetics. Increasing your personal energetics allows for you to naturally gravitate towards things and people that are good for you, well at the same time helping you move away from things and people that are draining.

  • Cleanse your mind of clutter
